I recently bought Cubase Pro 10.5, and installed on my 3 computers. (a “top tier” PC, a more old but working PC and on a MacbookPro)
On the “powerful” PC i have an issue that is very annoying, and i surfed through the forums, but neither i haven’t typed the “correct words” (i’m not native english speaker so maybe I have trouble explaining my problem) or there is no info.
The thing is that when I do some actions, especially the ones related with routing (ex. changing the output of a track) cubase (audio and screen) freezes for a second, maybe two. Nothing crashes, just stops, and it is very frustrating when you have to do lots of repetitive tasks (like activating a row of plugins) that cause this problem.
The pause is worse when I have activated delay compensation for recording on a project that has many latency-causing plugins. it goes to 3-4 seconds, and when you change the track you are recording, or when you activate a track for recording, it’s even more.
I have strong evidence that is not a “raw power” PC issue, because the PC is fair powerful (8 core at 4x5, 16gb RAM, water cooling, cubase and projects on SSD…) and also, in the other machines I have (which are WAY less powerful) the issue is gone.
Also, I don’t think it’s the soundcard. In this PC, i use a classic crappy behringer UMC 202HD, but i use also it on the macbook without issues… On the other PC i use a UMC18i20, and also, no problems.
Any ideas? Thanks for the help in advance!
